Another Apple-1 computer is being auctioned by Bonhams Auction House.  The Apple-1 owned by one Tom Romkey, a personal computer store owner in Florida, has owned the computer for the past 39 years.   The board, having sat on a shelf for the majority of that time, is in pristine condition and is expected to draw 300,000 to 500,000 USD at the auction.

The Apple-1’s were built by Steve Wozniak and Steve Jobs in the garage of Steve Jobs home in 1976.  This particular board is marked as 01-0059 and likely was part of the batch ordered and sold by Paul Terrell’s Byte Shop.   For more information on the auction, check out the Bonhams website at:
